Sing a new song to the Lord;
Let the sons of Zion sing!
Let their gladness be outpoured
To their Maker and their King!
Let their spirits leap with praise;
Let their hearts make melody,
For the Lord approves their ways,
Blessing their humility.
In the grace that crowns their heads,
Let His godly ones rejoice;
Though they lie upon their beds,
Let His praises rouse each voice!
Let them carry in their hands
Judgments sharper than a sword,
Binding princes, kings, and lands
To the glory of the Lord!
— M. W. Bassford, from Psalm 149
